St. George's Day Pagent

Stop! cries St. George

St. George rides onto the scene to discover the dragon about to eat the Princess.

"Stop!" he cries.

The dragon is distracted and the Princess runs to safety as the dragon turns its attention on to St. George.

The Dragon breathes fire at St George

It breathes out fiery breath but misses the nimble rider.

St. George advances with his lance ready.

With his lance he skewers the dragon

He skewers the dragon slaying him on the spot.

And then takes home the Princess

Then St. George and his horse take the Princess home.

Heh heh, good fun Caroline! Have you tried the movie poster feature at flicker? This would be perfect.

Caroline said...

Steve - I hadn't thought of that - maybe a bit late now though...

Brilliant! I can see this becoming a successful TV series or cartoon strip.

Caroline said...

Reluctant Nomad - thank you. The actors will all be happy to send out signed photos - except the Dalek who no doubt would send out singed ones...

Applause! Applause!!
Ladybird gave a magnificent performance, and Dalek was quite convincing as the dragon. Little cow and horse turned in subtle yet moving performances, in their supporting roles.
I was on the edge of my seat - thank heavens there was a happy ending.

I give this post two thumbs up!
:-)
